That's not so bad. The swinemelons aren't immediately obvious upon a cursory inspection. It's like vrykul having five digits but their skeletons having four--you don't pay attention to those details because they aren't having attention drawn to them.

No, one can only qualify as oblivious when it takes them six or seven years to realize that clefthooves have hooves, as opposed to kodo-like herbivorous dinosaur feet. That's me.

...why did you think they were called clefthooves?

I just watched the Blizzplanet Frostfire videos.

Questing has really changed a lot compared to the Demo from a few months ago. Personally, I like it that the Garrison was foreground. It gives us the feeling that we really established an outpost ourselves in this strange new world.

And we are the Commander. The Big Cheese. We are IMPORTANT.

Yeah, it's not quite as obvious as with the centaur, and given the usual gender diversity among NPC races, it's not like you're expecting it.

Frosthawk, can we get a few more slang terms for quillboar breasts? So far I've got porkpuppets, hogwobblers, bacon balloons, and chest ham, but I feel like we're only scratching the surface of what could be a wide-ranging and comprehensive classification system.

Faction war can be done well, but Blizzard has half assed it and it has predictably flopped as a result.

That would be massive Horde bias. Randy Savage was so powerful, he stopped the Rapture.

Though I will allow it if Death Knights get The Undertaker.

After years of being a bitch to Commander McNobody and Admiral McRageypants, we finally get to be in charge!

What do you mean I have to stand around the Town Hall for 8hrs a day, giving out quests and gold to mooks who can't figure out which part of the boar is the liver!?

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

Wing Commander Mulverick from Alterac Valley seems to appears in Frostfire Ridge:

I also found Guse, whom I believe is Wing Commander Guse (also from AV):

Here's how WOD should end:


(As Grom lay dying in a pool of blood at the end of the 6.4 raid..the Citadel of Chaos starts to collapse...the spirit of the alternate reality Velen...appears)

Grom: Prophet.......is it over?
Velen: At long last...no Warchief rules forever....
Grom: I see....only...blood....spilling out of me......(dies)
Velen: "Without Grom to contain the Iron Horde, it will run rampant across the land...there must always be...a Grand Warchief"
(the ghost of the alt reality Velen disappears...Thrall approaches the corrupted Gorehowl.)
Thrall: The weight of such a burden... Only I can hold it... It must be mine for there is no other...
(Suddenly Durotan Bursts in...)
Durotan: You hold a grim destiny in your hands, son- but it is not your own.
Thrall: Father! By the elements!
Durotan: The wounds sustained during my alliance with Yrel against Garrosh sealed my fate. The world of the living can no longer comfort me. Place the axe upon my hands, son. Forevermore, I will sit upon the Throne of Blood.
Thrall: No, father. I cannot.
Durotan: Do it, my son! You and these honorable heroes of your Horde have your own destinies to fulfill. This last act of service... is mine.
(more rocks continue to fall as Thrall turns toward Durotan with Gorehowl cradled in his hands before him.)
Thrall: You will not be forgotten father...
Durotan: I must be forgotten! If the world is to live free from the Tyranny of Fear, they must never know what was done here today!
(Durotan sits on the Throne of Blood...as rocks hide him from view...)
Durotan: Tell them only that the Grand Warchief is dead, and that Durotan died with him... Now go, LEAVE THE CITADEL OF CHAOS AND NEVER RETURN!
(Thrall escapes the Citadel of Chaos as it collapses)

Considering Blizzard's recent bastardization of Orcs, the notion that they would run rampant without a Warchief to hold them back isn't that far-fetched.

If the Garrisons are a mandatory part of the experience, (which they seem to be moving towards more and more) buildings shouldn't cost 5k gold.

I hope Blizzard sticks to their idea of introducing a live Grom in the game. I think they wanted one to be a World Boss. At full size, that'd be amazing.

It would have to be a baby grom. Have you seen the size of adult grom? They are the size of a Shattrath.

They wouldn't fit in any zone. I believe they made them TOO BIG.

Well, I think there are a few size differences between the Grom we've seen, but they're huge yes. I think they could really work on introducing huge creatures, though. Just look at Old Gods. They're supposed to be huge, but we only get to see small parts of them because Blizzard has problems really adding large creatures. As in.. HUUUUGE. Just look at what happened to our big friend Deathwing.
